Things to Do in New York City

The “House that Babe [Ruth] Built” has been replaced. In 2009, a new Yankee Stadium opened, with a litany of modern accoutrements and services. The designers claim the same field configurations lie within the shiny new stadium exterior and seats, but the New York Post newspaper thinks that new game statistics prove the paying field is not the same. It’s a New York kind of argument that probably has legs.
New Yankee Stadium, situated in Concourse, The Bronx, and with its own subway station, seats 54,251 fans and cost a cool $2.3 billion dollars to build. It offers game suites for businesses and private parties, as well as stadium tours and a host of memorabilia displays. What we didn’t find was a hot dog...
Among the features of the new Yankee Stadium, home to the New York Yankees Major League Baseball franchise and the New York City Football Club of the Major League Soccer organization, are endless dining facilities and places to buy beer. The eating establishments provide anything from vegan and sushi dishes to meat-heavy burgers, with a City Winery restaurant (in two locations) and a Benihana Teppanyaki-table food performance art restaurant. We liked the range of choices on a hot day from Ben & Jerry’s ice cream outlets, a perfect snack at Yankee Stadium.
